Avian Surgical Anatomy And Orthopedic Management, 2nd Edition (PDF Book)
Avian Surgical Anatomy: Thoracic and Pelvic Limbs by Orosz, Ensley and Haynes, was published in 1992 and has served as a standard guide for those performing orthopedic surgery on birds. According to statistics, it has been widely used by veterinary professionals in the field. However, due to it being out of print, there is a need for an updated and concise source of avian surgical anatomy. Our objective in this new edition has been to recapture the musculoskeletal anatomy of the original work and expand the scope to include comprehensive coverage for the clinical management of common fractures of the long bones of birds, primarily raptors. This information is backed by two decades of development and refinement by clinicians at the Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, making it a reliable resource.
The class Aves includes thousands of species with countless anatomic variations. While it is impractical to represent every species, this book specifically focuses on birds commonly encountered in private practice and rehabilitation medicine, including poultry, pigeons, parrots, and birds of prey. The inclusion of details of the vascular anatomy of the limbs, obtained through high-resolution digital computed tomography imaging of the appendicular skeleton of several diverse bird species, adds to the credibility and usefulness of the surgical procedures described in this edition.
The aim of this new information is to provide a better understanding of skeletal and vascular anatomy, improve the interpretation and reporting of findings, develop effective treatment methods, and enhance the teaching of management procedures for orthopedic issues in birds. Quotes and findings from recent research have been incorporated to ensure that the content is up-to-date and reflective of the best treatment options and current practices in avian orthopedics.
As our knowledge of avian anatomy, health, and disease progresses, the need for improved resources becomes crucial. This book serves as a valuable contribution to the veterinary and scientific community, offering reliable information that has been reviewed and scrutinized. With a focus on providing the best care for avian patients, this edition aims to enrich the field of avian care and contribute to its ongoing improvement.
